I dunno... 3 piece cap, the inlays don't look to be done too well with filler around them, some of the frets look like they need work. If you want a guitar to keep and sell on later then maybe, but I would rather a new Tokai than that particular one.
I had an 81 LS50 and they're nothing to get excited about. My LS200 though, is!!!

Just my 2c!

Maybe you have better eyes, I don't see a lot of filler around the inlays!? You are right about the frets though... especially the first fret.

Not too sure what the eyes were all about there buddy!

I can see filler on every visable inlay on the 6th picture down. Can anyone else see this?

Yeah I see it Ste. It's actually black, RF. Are you expecting to see white filler?

I personally hate the 3 piece body, or at least the very visible joins.

Another thing. Why does the headstock look brand new?

Yes, nice guitar. I don't like the 3 piece body either but others obviously feel different. There was a thread recently about current build quality which focussed on bad tuner alignment. Looks like things were no different back in '78.

Way overpriced. By the time you add shipping and import tax you'd be far better off getting a second hand gibson. Maybe even a historic at that price
